proposition c to begin to address your pension issues and who know s where this ends up. let's understand what the issue is and what other jurisdictions have done. to me this is acting responsible as city government and solving issues before they reach crisis levels and protecting future generations. thank you supervisor wiener for your support. >> thank you, mr. president that concludes roll call for introductions. >> i would be happy to be included on that item. >> the next item is the opportunity for the public to address the board for two minutes on items. please note that public comment is not allowed on items that have already been subject to
4:01 pm

4:02 pm
ladies and gentlemen, after 28 years i'm here in this place. i have the courage to ask our president and our -- [speaker not understood] for ten months we have no sheriff. i would like to ask you to come
4:03 pm
with me to give honor to those who died for our country. the third one, which i made a mistake now. i would like to tell to our sheriff welcome back and is he going to take care of district.
4:04 pm
>> next speaker. [speaker not understood] what happens to our institutions like the public library when they are run by our increasingly government by private partnership? it's what happens when the public-private
4:05 pm
partnership can destroy democracy and government's purpose becomes an effort to maintain class barriers and promote the influence of private money. the answer is if they can do it to the library, they can do to whatever you care about yourself. there is no accountability for the public money that is spent. there is no accountability for the private money that is raised. there is no accountability for
4:06 pm
where the money goes. most of all there is no accountability for the sunshine and ethics violations that allow them to operate with impunity and in secret. city hall itself is enslaved by private money. are you prepared for a city hall where citizens can't criticize the corporations because the corporations paid for the chairs? not only is what they do in the public library, but they will tell you that to your face. instead of democrat ethics and accountable we have city hall politicians who see themselves as the only ones in the lifeboats. a society that is run without exits is a boat that will sink and society will fail. thank you. >> thank you, next speaker. >> members of board of supervisors ray, director of san francisco open government. thomas aquincas teaches that willful ignorance of what ought to know say mortal sin. the previous speaker has been coming here and talking about the friends for the past thee decades and i have only done it for a year. it's the ideal example of a
4:07 pm
private public partnership with no public component. i have documents from the chief financial officer of the library to sustainiate that. how can public people who have been given a public trust sit on a board and lie openly to the public, stating that money that is raised in the public's name is being expended and have absolutely nothing to back it up. it's deceptive and misrepresented and right now it's a downright fraud. and your willful ignorance is a
4:08 pm
mortal sin. very frankly for you to sit there and allow a private public partnership to operate for decades with no oversight, not at all, millions of dollars of friend or raises and of the chief executive director donna barrow disappeared in december and contrary to what usually happens there was no oh, thanks for your wonderful things and just went away into the night. i wonder why that was. >> next speaker.
4:09 pm
>> good afternoon president chiu and supervisors. i have graphics. i guess the sheriff is coming back. it's all coming back to you now. and it's not unusual to lose your job at any time. it's not unusual to not even have a single dime. it's not unusual, it happens everyday in the city by the bay, you will find it happens all the time. the city will never do what you want it to, why can't this crazy city be mine? it's not unusual to not even have any work at any time. it's not unusual to lose your job. it's such a crime. if you should ever maybe want your back in the city changes its mind. it's not unusual sheriff mirkarimi to welcome you back. welcome back. hey hey hey, welcome back.
4:10 pm
welcome back. moons and junes and ethics, dizzy dancing. when every sheriff's dream becomes real i have looked at city life that way. i have looked at city from all districts now, from win and lose and we'll still try somehow. it's life's city allusions i recall. i really don't know politics at all. >> thank you, next speaker. >> my my name is eugene gordon, jr..

4:13 pm
last time my next door neighbor of 20 months, 14.5% increase sent him packing. while we're going about taking stock of our homes in the city, i want to reiterate that market-rate apartment in the city is first and foremost a vehicle for investors to make money. and they are not homes. when you are taking stock of the situation of the homes that are created here in the city, please why don't we find out what is a second home and a third home for the people that are buying our city? now later on this afternoon in 15 minutes we're going to have a ceremony for a fallen ambassador. there might be a moment of silence. why do we revere quietness?

4:24 pm
>> it is one thing to anticipate a death because of old age or sickness. its quite another to experience the sudden violent death of a loved one. >> we need to bring awareness to this. we talk about bring awareness to other things, but why don't we bring awareness to this? our children are lieing in the streets dying everyday and if i have to show this everyday i will. i don't know what else to do. my son laying on a gurney.
4:25 pm
>> since 2004, san francisco has experienced an unprecedented number of homicides. >> we talk about domestic violence, this is violence against our children also. what about our children? what about the families? >> 60% of the homicide victims are people of color. their loved ones -- >> please help us. >> while at the same time are facing the crimes and violence of the unsafe neighborhoods
4:26 pm
that surround them everyday. >> just give us the same attention. >> thank you. any other members of public who wish to speak in general public comment, please step up. >> hello. christina olague, i have put in a request to meet with you and i'm looking for a call back. all right. i just feel like we do need some major reforms within the city. some of it is within our
4:27 pm
shelter systems and our property. i just feel like the local -- i feel like the shelter monitoring committee is being ignored. jane kim you are doing some work with that and i would appreciate if would you sends one of your legislative aide. >> excuse me, circumstance sir, we have a rule in the board that permits speakers from targeting certain supervisors. >> maybe you should send your legislative aides. maybe jane kim shouldn't be the only one trying to make the shelter systems better. i feel like the sf hot team is really being ignored in this equation. they will put someone off the
4:28 pm
streets and put them in a house and put their lives together. they have already cut them once and i would like at least people to start bringing them into the equation. the other thing that i am having a problem with. it just seems that everybody is disconnected from each other. like the san francisco male health association, the sro task force, the local homeless coordinating board and the shelter monitors are not really coming together to deal with this problem. >> thank you very much. i'm sorry, i realized you still have 25 seconds left. so we'll give you a little bit more time. >> i think the other thing, too is that we do need to deal with property and empty and abandoned property. so you have an excessive amount of people who are sleeping on the sidewalks and double-tripled up. you have families who live in
4:29 pm
something like the size of a bathroom. when we have houses that are empty. >> thank you. are there any members of public who wish to speak in general public comment? seeing no one, public comment is closed. colleagues, the memorial service starts at 4:30 and see if we can wrap this up superquickly. >> items 36 through 40 are considered for immediate and unanimous adoption and can be acted upon a single roll call vote unless members would like to severe the item? >> supervisor wiener 37. >> on the balance of the agenda, madame clerk roll call moment. supervisor elsbernd aye supervisor farrell aye supervisor kim
